Ion Hazzikostas on Azerite Armor & Mythic+ Rewards



Game Director Ion Hazzikostas answered a few questions on Twitter yesterday about two pieces of the same Azerite Armor requiring higher Heart of Azeroth level and Mythic+ rewards.

First off, Ion answered a question related to Mythic+ rewards in Battle for Azeroth. A player apparently got confused and thought Blizzard promised Mythic+ to be more rewarding during a Q&A, but the answer was pulled out of context and pertained to the question beginning at 43:00.

The second question is about two pieces of the same Azerite Armor (same traits, source, item levels) requiring higher Heart of Azeroth levels to unlock traits. The issue mostly affects dungeon gear.

According to Ion, the system isn’t supposed to work like this. Heroic/Mythic gear pieces should obviously have different requirements and power, but that shouldn’t be the case if the source of an item is the same. In the image above, we have the Emissary vs. Warfront/PvP Reward.

This WoW reddit thread apparently has you saying the mythic+ chest was going to be more generous in June this year during a Q&A.

I recognize the unfortunate confusion that our lack of clarity here caused, but that’s not accurate: The question I was answering there began at 43:00 or so, where I said M+ rewards were going to use the same structure as Legion. Everything I said is how the system works on live.

Yo @WarcraftDevs this is the third time in the past few days I have seen someone mentioning this. Please comment.

I’d be curious to hear more info on this – there’s nothing about the system that’s meant to work that way. A Mythic vs. Heroic piece may have different requirements (and different power), but if the source is the same the requirements should be the same.

I have yet to see it myself, but I haven’t repeated low level content so I don’t have old gear to go and compare it too. Like wise, I haven’t repeated high content enough. My concern is that I have seen multiple reports. (Link to comment)

Got it. We’ll look into it, thanks! The image linked in that thread is the Emissary-reward vs. Warfront/PvP version of the same item issue I mentioned above, FWIW.
